Junior Year is a key time to begin to firm up your college decision. But making this decision and being able to go to one’s college of choice is an arduous progress.

Senior Seminar: Truth on Trial

$545

High School

One of the critical issues for our society is moral relativism–the idea that there are no abiding values by which to orient our lives. By giving students a philosophical grounding in topics surrounding truth, knowledge and the goal of human life, this seminar helps them to recognize and critique relativistic claims which are commonly advanced in the media, public policy and academia. As a result, they will be better prepared to continue their intellectual and cultural development in the university.
